About the property

Apartment in Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort, Costa Calida, Spain - Extra Large Balcony, 20 Mins To Mar Menor Beaches

Our Video of the Apartment, Resort and Region is in the gallery above, number 49/49 - (not accessible from the 'Photos' gallery).

The apartment is first floor with an extra large L-shaped balcony which doubles the living area. There is plenty of room for the rattan sofa and easy chairs, several loungers and a breakfast area with dining table and chairs. There are spectacular open views over the lake, 11th green and golf course. The resort has excellent security with controlled access, CCTV perimeter surveillance and 24/7 patrols. Hacienda Riquelme is spacious, quiet, and beautifully maintained and is in the traditional Spanish style. The club house and centre is based on the beautiful and historic manor house and has an excellent restaurant, bars, pizzeria, large Spar supermarket, and golf pro-shop. You are just 20 minutes from the Mar Menor which has miles of clean, very safe beaches (perfect for children) and traditional 'low-rise' small towns along its coast. The lively small town of Sucina is just a 5 minute drive away and has lots more bars, restaurants cafes and shops. There are 20 superb swimming pools throughout the resort, the nearest is just a two minute's walk away. Sports facilities include tennis courts, outdoor gym, short tennis, boule pistes (steel boule in apartment for you to use), driving range and a practice area (2 sets of clubs in apartment for you to use). There are many other golf courses nearby including five more in the GNK group, where you can get discounted green fees.

About Paul Gebbett

Marilyn and I are are both recently retired, Marilyn from a lifetime of teaching, and me from a long career as a car designer and a shorter career as a Design and Technology teacher.

Marilyn still keeps very busy directing plays and musicals, learning Spanish, keeping fit and working for charities. I will now have more time for playing golf, riding my bike, windsurfing, skiing, painting and, of course, coming out to Hacienda Riquelme.

Paul Gebbett purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Paul Gebbett chose Murcia

We chose our apartment on Hacienda Riquelme for the spectacular view, and we never tire of sitting on the balcony and watching the golf in the day and the sun setting across the lake in the evening. We love Hacienda Riquelme and think that it is a very special place; spacious, peaceful and beautiful.

We also love the Mar Menor beaches, and the fact that this part of Spain is largely unspoilt and that there is so much to do in the region.

What makes this apartment unique

EXTRA SIZE --- All the apartments on Hacienda Riquelme are virtually the same size, but the balconies are different. Our balcony is one of the few L-shaped dual aspect balconies and it doubles the living area (it is 4x the size of the smallest balconies). It makes the apartment very relaxing and spacious.

VIEWS --- Stunning views over the lake and open views of the golf course and a 'gallery' view over the 11th green where there is always something to watch.

EXTRAS we provide --- Loungers, parasol, lilo's, etc for the pool. Beach chairs, parasol, buckets/spades, boule, etc for the beach. In the apartment there are extra shelves, cupboards, chest of drawers, hairdryer, extension lead with UK sockets... everything we can think of to make your holiday as good as possible.

- 'Things To Do & Maps' -- shows our recommendations for the best restaurants, bars, beaches, walks, and interesting places to go, plus maps of how to get to them. Our guests have been very complimentary about how helpful this has been in discovering and enjoying this lovely region.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fab Fab Fab - that's what we think of your apartment at Riquelme. We had a great time with beautiful weather every day.

Real home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to this region of Spain before but were looking for something different. We certainly found it. Paul the owner always replied to our queries promptly. The apartment was really spacious and well equipped. The golf resort was well kept and very secure. Club house excellent with good food and service. Several good places to eat in Sucina. Thanks to Jill for recommending the 1.39 wine from the local supermarket! Well worth trying. The beaches in the area are amazing. Our favourite would definitely be Lo Pagan. All in all a brilliant holiday and would certainly visit again.

Perfect family location

  • 5 of 5

Imaculately presented apartment. Well furnished with great views.

All facilities in appartment were good - washing machine, dishwasher, loads of bits (seats, buckets and spades) to take to the beach.

Very close to local village which has good places to eat.

Friendly point of contact made us feel safe.

The balcony is massive. We ate all our breakfasts sat out there and watched alot of people fail to hit the green on the 11th :-)

We rented this appartment not for the golf but because it had so many good things going for it including the price. The golf was a happy extra. The parking facilities under the appartment were great. The car was kept cool and safe at all times.

The complex had an outer road which makes for a good running track (Strava segments included).

The complex has security on site 24 hours a day.

Supermarket onsite DID have most all we needed at a reasonable price. Onsite resturant served good food.

Had really good interaction with the owners who were full of information about the place and what we could do. We hired a travel cot from them which was very good quality and other things were available too. Overall a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely be paying another visit!

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment as soon as we stepped in. You can tell it is much loved by Paul and Marilyn. All the little extras just add to the experience. Adapters, loungers, parasol and cool bag to name a few.

The position on the resort is good, near enough to walk to shop and bar etc but not too close to be disturbed by noise.

The information folder is really useful and we used it to find the best beaches in the area.

Gill the key holder and her partner Harvey were extremely friendly and helpful and if I owned a property they would be the people I would want looking after it.

Overall we had a great holiday on a peaceful resort in a lovely apartment.

We will definitely visit again and we will be recommending it to friends and family.

Ideal holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in the apartment. The location was lovely and quiet with good views over the golf course. It had everything we needed including games and inflatables for the pool. The beds were very comfortable and I had the best sleep I have had in ages. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment, clean and tidy, plenty of room with everything we needed for our stay. Communication with the owner, Paul, was excellent. We settled in from the minute we walked through the door. Beds were comfy, Aircon good (and very necessary at night!) WiFi was brilliant, which made our teenager very happy! TV with English channels, although apart from the odd game at Wimbledon we didn't really use. The balcony is brilliant, we spent many hours relaxing and watching the golfers, and it was shady in the morning but sunny from about 3 onwards. Parasol and loungers were available which we took to the beach and pool and we're really grateful for.

This complex is beautiful and has everything you need, you could probably stay on site and be perfectly happy, but decided a car and did some exploring and found the local area within a 30 minute drive fascinating. Great beaches on mar menor, warm sea, and some excellent restaurants ( including the one on site which was very good value and great food)

Can't wait to return, wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again.

MEDITERRANEAN this east facing coast has classic, golden sand beaches (30 min) - 3. SOUTH FACING COAST, this coastline is rugged and mountainous with coves and beaches between the headlands (30-40 min)


Cheapest flights can be booked with our flexible changeover days (eg Tuesday - Tuesday). Murcia airport is just 20 min away with direct flights from RyanAir, EasyJet, etc. Hire car picked up at the airport. Alicante airport 60 min away by easy Motorway-type roads and has more flights, so can be even cheaper. Detailed map will be sent to you giving clear instructions of how to get to the resort.


Sucina, 5 min drive, is the nearest small town with lively bars, lots of restaurants, cafes, and several handy shops. Murcia City (30min drive) has a fine cathedral, lots of lovely plazas and the wonderful 'Casino' a palace with rooms in the styles of European palaces and cheap entry price. Cartagena (30 min drive) has fine a Roman amphitheatre and museum and a wealth of history, it has an attractive port (cruise stop-over) and has an interesting labyrinth of ancient backstreets. At the top of the Mar Menor (20 min drive) are the popular mud baths at Lo Pagan where you can experience this health spa treatment for free and rinse off in the Mar Menor.

Further Details:

Eating out - Hacienda Riquelme resort has an excellent, reasonably priced restaurant in the historic and beautifully restored 'El Cason' mansion house. There are a good variety of restaurants in nearby Sucina and many, many more in the towns along the shore of the Mar Menor. For a special occasion there is the truly excellent (but still reasonably priced) and unique 120 year old 'La Encarnacion' restaurant on the sea front in Los Alcazares. And why not eat right on the beach at a superb fish restaurants in La Ribera, an unforgettable experience. All the beach bars on the Mar Menor promenade have do superb Tapas. The book in the apartment has details of all our favourites including a choca-holics dream cafe in Cartegena, best value all-day breakfast by the beach, chill-out bar watching the kite-surfers, best Tapas bars, excellent Indian restaurants and as many authentic Spanish restaurants as we can find... we visit as often as we can to continue the research for you!
